prepurchase inspection in Hamilton?

Can anyone recommend a Hamilton garage who can do a good (RMP-quality) prepurchase inspection including compression/leakdown test, etc.? I'm thinking about buying an E46 but I'm far away and I need someone to check the car out before I travel there.

I'm not sure how much it would cost but the dealer is on Upper James St.

Only other place I trust is Village Auto in Ancaster.

I'd probably go to the dealer, but when I bought my E36 (4 years ago) I had my PPI done at The Bug Shop. They're on Kenilworth avenue, just north of main st. They're euro car specialists...

I've heard that the guy from Import Auto Works on Morley (off Parkdale) is pretty good. It's been a while since I worked around there, but there used to always be BMWs and Audis parked outside.
